State has budget after Illinois House overrides Governor Rauner's veto

1 Person Arrested For Suspicious Powder Situation At IL Capitol

Shortly after the scheduled 1:30 p.m. start time, a House official announced there would be a delay as the chamber waits for more lawmakers to be allowed into the building.

The Capitol was not being evacuated, but people were kept from entering the building, the State Journal-Register.

WAND-TV in Decatur reports that Capitol Police arrested a woman for allegedly throwing white powder near the Governor's office.




City fire marshal Chris Richmond said no injuries were reported, according to the State Journal-Register, and a spokesman for the IL secretary of state's office, Dave Druker, said one person was in custody but gave no further details.

Rauner had earlier implored the General Assembly to sustain his vetoes of a $36 billion spending plan financed with a $5 billion income tax increase. "The legislature could have passed a no tax hike, no reform balanced budget two years ago". Rauner says the 32 percent income tax increase "a 2-by-4 smacked across the foreheads of the people of IL".

Speaker Michael Madigan released a statement saying, "The House will hold a vote on Thursday, July 6 to override the governor's vetoes of the balanced budget sent to him". The tax hike was approved with 72 votes, so the absence of even a few lawmakers who previously voted for the plan could upend an override attempt.
